Ok, Ok....

Here I am guilt ridden. So now I blog. Pics will just have to come later! We left off with Syd's unblogged b-day. Not so soon after...
  • Justin a bought a truck - he has been salivating over having a truck since that last one he sold, so that I could have a mini-van. Then....
  • We completely finished our yard, cement, rock and all! Love it! Then...
  • Justin bought a tent-trailer - Which we have taken camping twice thus far, and have loved it. Camping is whole new experience now. Then...
  • (Leilani in a moment of weakness) Justin got a dog....
  • Then I am a pissed off wife all the time.
  • Now our yard is trashed, and there is crap the size of Jupiter all over the grass (or what is left of it.)
  • Another time filler for us would be that Justin and I have decided to be foster parents. We feel so strongly that there are children that need our concern and love. We have been attending classes all throughout June. Supposedly two nights a week from 5;30 - 9:30, but because of our crazy schedule anyways, we have half the classes to make up this month. Can't wait to complete the certification, and see what is in store.
  • In the mean time, our ward was split and also a whole new ward was created. The "Old Farm Ward". I am now in the new primary presidency, and the last two weeks of my life have been all "primary". It's all I(we) think about day and night. Organizing a primary from the ground up is no small task. Lots of fun, but tons of work.
  • In addition, some of you may or may not know, but we (justin and i - just thought i'd clarify) have been hoping for another Zufelt baby. We haven't been trying too long, but in our "zufelt" time - it has been forever. If this is to much info for you than quit reading and move to the next bullet! I am more regular than the sun, never-ever late, and take forever to read + on a test. I was almost two weeks late, and for sure prego with all of my text book prego symptoms. but no + on a test. We were super excited, but several days ago I started my period. All sorts of confused I called my doc, and he said it was miscarriage. I was so taken back, because we have never had any problems in area ever before. So back to trying we go. However, I feel so lucky (and blessed) to have never had problems up until # 3. Only time will tell!
  • Moving on - Justin is now on graves, and has for several weeks now been working on his days off up at Cedar Breaks for his internship. Needless to say we are super busy, and lately seem to all be super tired.
  • update: Dog for free! German Pointer- trained hunting dog. great with kids. Want him gone yesterday!
  • Oh ya, and last week Justin sold our couches on tradio (tradio junkie- he is). They sold way faster than he thought. We hadn't ordered or even looked at new couches, when he sold them. We have been sitting on the floor for one week. We have now ordered new couches through Justin's dad's company. Could be sitting on floor for months. Wanna come over and chill Asian style with us?

I am so glad that you finally updated your blog. I love to see how you guys are doing. That is so cool about being foster parents, I have thought about doing that many times, but I have also thought about adoption, which I am hoping to do someday. I think you guys will make great foster parents.

WoW! Can we say super mom/wife/primary leader/professional pooper-scooper! Ha! Sorry..I had to. Glad to hear things are going well for ya.

MathisFam said...

I'm sure your dogs craps are smaller than my sister in laws great danes! Not that that will make you feel better. Um let me know when you have couches. I'm not sure I could pry my big fat prego butt off the floor very easily. Call me. I need your e-mail address since we went private!

Love the update, I do miss seeing all the girls at girls night so this is fun! good bad and ugly. I know the feeling about dogs we had two little indoor dogs when we had Addie and had to get rid of them shortly after she was born. Sorry trying is so frusterating I know the feeling it took TOO long to have our first one... we were shocked to have #2 so quickly. Primary presidency is so fun for you, I love the primary! I also just found out your my VT companion... i'm not good at that so hopefully you can help push me. Can't wait to see pics, good luck in the foster parent area my hubs grew up with foster kids in the house ... so he is very familiar with that. You guys are great! talk soon,
Brandy

-Josh got a truck last year...he LOVES it! He is such a truck guy too!
-Camping with the kids? So fun and crazy, I wish we could go more!
-Dog...= LOTS of work for Mom, which is why we don't have one, I can hardly take care of my own 'pets' let along a four-legged one! Perhaps someday!
-Foster Parents? WOW!! I am impressed, you two will be GREAT ones!!!
-In the primary pres huh? Muhwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! jk, you are totally rockin the primary, aren't ya! ;)
-I am sorry to hear about your baby woes, you know that exact thing happened to us on pregnancy #3, hard to deal with- but easier when you have two beautiful kids to come home to! It is one of those cases where I know EXACTLY how you felt! :D
-ROFL (literally...on the floor...*snicker,snicker*) on your 'asian' style sitting situation! You two crack me UP!!! It is sure fun to get new furniture though! I'll bet your time on the floor will only make you appreciate your new couches that much more!
SOOOOOO nice to 'see' ya in the blogg-o-sphere again! I missed ya! :D

Wow Leilani! You have an overload kind of a life at the moment! Just breath in and out and relax for just a mintue. Your baby will come, sometimes we just have to be patient. Trust me I know-I am the one with problems in this department.It was fun seeing you guys! Wish we could have visited longer. How was that GIRLIE PARTY?

Deedra said...

Now that was a post!! You are too funny! You need to get yourself a column in the paper! Seriously! Anyway, it sounds like you are busy - but happy, so that's good. Talk to you later!

Cheryl said...

You've been crazy busy! Glad to see what you've been up to. I'm sorry to hear you lost a baby, it must have been hard. Good luck with the fostering classes.

we are GIBSON said...

Holy crap, lady! That was one truckload of a post! PS - I really hate that you're private, it means I never know if you've updated and I find myself almost a month behind when I remember to check! Anyway, I hear ya on the trying part... It is a trying time and it will all work out the way it's supposed to. Even though we don't see the reasoning, it could be that you need to be foster parents to some children before you bring another of your own. Who knows - either way you're great parents and any child would be blessed to spend time in your home.

Amber W. said...

Wow, woman! You must have super powers to be able to keep up with all that's going on in your life! I'm glad I am now able to read up on everything that's going on. :-)
